We had a lovely day! The driver Andrea is very skilled and kind. Our guide Ana was amazing and caring, we learned a lot about Italia’s history with her. Firstly, they took us to a shop were we could buy goods (chocolates, wine, truffle products and olive oil) for a good price. Then, we went to Montepulciano and saw the place where Twilight was filmed (nice as a former fan). It was such an interesting medieval city. The family in the winery welcome us with excellent food and wine (wish to repeat this one someday). The day finished with the astonishing view in Pienza. Rate 10/10. Definitely recommend this tour.

So much fun with our guide Heather and driver Andre. They looked after us very well all day long. The views were amazing and overall the day was very enjoyable, made several friends on the trip as a solo traveler so never really felt alone. Would recommend!

Anna (guide) and Andrei (driver) were both excellent and made the trip a breeze for all patrons. My girlfriend gets motion sick easily and they offered her the emergency seat in the front of the bus to alleviate it. Highly recommended.

The mountaintop town and the farm were the best! Fantastic views and great homeade food!

Heather is the best guide! Thanks for a wonderful honeymoon excursion to Toscana
